Pelosi compares 'transformative' coronavirus legislation to scope of ObamaCare
Will stimulus, infrastructure lead to guaranteed higher taxes?
Forbes Media chairman Steve Forbes and Joe Lavorgna, former special assistant to President Trump, on how more stimulus and spending will impact the markets, economy and Americans’ wallets.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, said Tuesday President Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief legislation is on par with the 2010 Affordable Care Act in terms of the transformative reach of the legislation.
Pelosi said that in her 33 years in Congress the major health care overhaul dubbed ObamaCare had been her most "consequential" piece of legislation – "up until now."
"This is definitely on a par with that if not to exceed it in terms of its impact on many more poor people in our country," Pelosi said at a Capitol news conference Tuesday.
